There are three points in the preceding comment [1]: (i) the sign in Eq.(7) in the original paper[2] is wrong; (ii) non-Abelian geometrical phase(GP) of a large-detuned Λ system ( sin γ ≈ 0 with γ… Expand

In this reply, we address the comment by Ericsson and Sjoqvist on our paper [Phys. Rev. A {\bf 84}, 034103 (2011)]. We point out that the zero gauge field is not the evidence of trivial geometric… Expand

The recent interest in "superchiral" fields, generated near planar chiral metamaterials, has prompted questions of deeper links between beam helicity and optical angular momentum. To address the… Expand
